UNC Asheville men's soccer sophomore student-athlete Frank Morales is really up front when talking about how important his scholarship is to him.

"Without the help of a scholarship, I don't think I'd even be here," Morales said. "The scholarships are very helpful."

An aspiring pediatrician from Greeley, Colo., Morales knows the opportunity to be a UNC Asheville student-athlete through a scholarship is because of so many supporting the Bulldogs.

Morales spoke these words on the second day of the 2017 Bulldog Athletic Association (BAA) Scholarship Golf Classic that was held on Monday, Aug. 28 and Tuesday, Aug. 29.

The annual event sponsored by Adidas, Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina and Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort raises scholarship money for the UNC Asheville Athletics Annual Scholarship Fund.

The 2017 edition of the annual event raised a record-breaking over $120,000. Over the last five years, the BAA Scholarship Golf Classic has raised over $500,000.
